What to Pack

Wondering what to bring for a week (or more!) at SYP? It's pretty easy; bring what you need for the week, but don't overpack.

The following is a general list of what you can expect to bring. In addition, some classes require additional or special equipment. Check below the general list for program-specific suggestions. A packing list will also be sent out with your welcome packet.

General Packing Guidelines

*Prescription Medications

All students taking prescription medications, are required to bring and turn in medication in single-dose packaging that has been pre-dosed for the correct time they are taken.  We recommend the use of an online pharmacy that provides pre-dosing, like PillPack by Amazon (a free service, you only pay your copays). However, we understand that these services are not always feasible and can take a significant amount of time (at least 2 weeks) to get your prescriptions set up. If you are unable to use a service such as PillPack, please pre-dose medication and provide it to our Front Desk in a daily (AM/PM) dispenser. This requirement does not include over-the-counter medicine.

SYP does provide many over-the-counter medications as needed, please do not send these with your child. In your SYP confirmation paperwork, you will have the opportunity to authorize SYP staff to provide specific over-the-counter medications or not. In addition, we are happy to create an individual medication plan with you upon request. You can reach us at syp@mtu.edu 

Program-Specific Packing Lists

Some classes need equipment or other special "stuff" to come to camp with you. Pack these things in addition to your regular items.
